I have it pre-ordered, my friend (and I'm far more excited for it than anything by LCD). Drastically overdone Interference jokes aside, the preferred Broken Social Scene abbreviation should always be BSS.

I figured you showed up to "riff" on my New Pornographers comment.

Which reminds me, I appreciated your performances in The Bangs of New York, The Legs Parted, and Fuck 'er Island. What sort of sex toy is The Invention of Hugo Cabret?

BSS and LCD don't have Impyfications. THE SOSCH! looks too Jewish and THE SYST! sounds like something you get after a night with the second poster on this page.

Anyway, I never got around to posting impressions on this album, but I somewhat unsurprisingly love it. How gorgeous is that last portion of "Ungrateful Little Father?" How great does Emily sound on "Sentimental X's?" How completely unnecessary and distracting is the intro to "Highway Slipper Jam?" "All to All" has to still be considered my favorite though. Just sublime stuff.

Lowlights? You want lowlights? Meet the much-better-live-treatment "Texico Bitches," "Forced to Love," and the most haphazardly tacked on closer since "Her Majesty."

I've never heard a live take of Texico Bitches, but it's one of my favs on the album.

I think it's pretty much better for a variety of reasons: the more pronounced bassline, different guitar sound, lack of the "melting like a sno cone" line, and above all, the vastly superior drums.

Side note, the other one they played that night, which I can now clearly remember having heard it on the album, was "Sweetest Kill."

Same.

"I'm melting like a sno cone/I'm talking on the phone phone" sounds like a particularly inspired Ke$ha line, but that doesn't make me like the song any less.

So I pre-ordered the album last night. Where's my digital EP download? Huh? Where is it Arts & Crafts?

World Sick and Water in Hell are the best songs i reckon.

at 63 minutes though it could use some pretty savage editing... i liked most of the songs in parts, but by the same token most of the songs gave me something to *complain* about as well.

Every BSS song sounds better live, so I cannot agree with your low lighting.

Well it wouldn't be a BSS release without a little dissent among the fan base.

Here's something: "Lover's Spit (Redux)" is damn near perfect.

I just really like their approach to how they mix their records. It seems their mixes 'a wash'.

Picked up the CD at lunch today, and was lucky to get the last free copy of the EP to go with it.

And speaking of New Pornographers, grabbed that for only $4 at the same time (frequent buyer points, baby), and got the free 7" vinyl.

I love free stuff.

Is redux the live radio version with LF singing?
